In this webinar, Judi discusses why we need “play” in healthcare settings. This may seem like a really strange combination of the serious nature in healthcare service provision, where life and death decisions are made and play?
Dr Parson says the reason we need play is that play provides an entry point to communicate with children. In play, children are given the tools to explain more fully their thoughts and feelings than with words alone, and as such play is an ever-expanding vocabulary for the paediatric nurse and children in their care.
In this session, you will:
- Gain an understanding of the importance of play in healthcare settings
- Acquire knowledge regarding the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
- Gain an awareness of what constitutes play
